Connect Your Sequel Pro with Laravel Homestead

Laravel Homestead is a vagrant box created by Taylor Otwell to mimic production environment locally. It’s a very awesome tool for developing Laravel applications. Most PHP developers are used to just using PHPMyAdmin to connect to their MySQL databases meanwhile Sequel Pro is also a very good tool for connecting to your MySQL database.

Once you have initiated your homestead using vagrant up, Connect Your Sequel Pro with Laravel homestead by doing this:

1. Fire up your Sequel Pro

2. Choose Standard

3. Put in your credentials as stated below:


Username: homestead

Password: secret

Database: That is very optional, you don’t need to put that

Port: 33060

4. Click Connect

That’s all :)


If you have any challenges still connecting to your homestead database, please let me know in the comments section.
